Make sure your dealer has references, third-party certifications, and a valid insurance certificate before you sign a contract.
As the weather grows colder, foggy windows can become a problem in some homes. This simple phenomenon happens when an object is cooler than the air around it, causing a thin layer of water molecules to form on the surface. The windows in our homes are among the most common spots where this condensation occurs because windowpanes receive direct contact with the cold air outside and are usually the coldest surfaces in the interior of a house. While this may sound harmless, the condensation that forms causes water droplets to run down windows and walls, which can result in mold and mildew.
